Clinton vs. trump

Tonight’s debate was less interesting than I had hoped but it did make it clear that trump has pat answers while Clinton has policy proposals. His supporters don’t care about policies, so I assume they think he won.

Clinton did about as well as I thought she would but trump was twice as good as I expected. So, let’s see, let me do the math. I expect she would rate an 8 and he would rate a 2. Instead, I’d have to say he did much better than I had anticipated, so I’ll give him a 4. Which means she was twice as effective as he was.

But will either see much of a bump in the polls? I doubt it, though probably Clinton’s slight lead will be a bit more firm now.
